Following on the recent release of the Piper PA34 Seneca V for Microsoft Flight Simulator, Carenado is back with a Cessna 170B for the simulator. On Facebook, the company announced that the plane is “coming soon” followed by a range of previews of the plane in action.
The Cessna 170B is similar to that of the popular Cessna 172, but comes with a taildragger configuration. When the aircraft was introduced, it featured a new wing design and flaps that went down to 40 degrees giving it further ability for short take-off and landings. That said, the Cessna 170B is still a great aircraft for almost any type of GA flying, making it a great aircraft type to have in the simulator.
In true Carenado fashion, a number of quality previews were shared highlighting the impressive-looking 3D model and texture work. That said, very little was said about what would be included when the aircraft release for the sim. However, we can likely take a good guess it will include similar features to other Carenado release, which would include HQ stereo sound recordings, cold and dark states and various animations.
If this reveal follows the recent pattern set by Carenado, we should see the plane released on the Microsoft Flight Simulator Marketplace in the coming days and weeks.
